Last weekend, the team of the Fortress of Culture Šibenik visited the Business Incubator Novska to test virtual reality (VR) content which will soon be available to visitors of St. Michael’s and St. John’s fortresses in Šibenik.
Interesting VR scenarios will bring a new, interactive and fun experience for future visitors thanks to Pismo Games developer team. Using VR equipment, visitors will be able to use bows and arrows, defend the town and fortresses from attack, escape from the dungeon of the fortress or participate in a race set in centuries.
"We are extremely satisfied with what we saw and experienced and we are looking forward to the reactions of our visitors," said the Fortress of Culture team after the test.
